Community Connections

One key lesson we have learned through watersheds it is that we are all connected! Whether you are a student trying to find local organizations to get involved in or teachers trying to find more resources to bring local information into your classroom, this is a page to help connect you with other local projects and organizations.

We would like to acknowledge our partners for recognizing that education can instill stewardship and behaviors that will restore and preserve healthy  marine resources in the Salish Sea.
